“Waiting on” Wednesday | Scythe by Neal Shusterman


Breaking the Spine created this feature – ‘Waiting on’ Wednesday, where bloggers could gush about their most coveted upcoming release. Here’s mine:



In a world where disease has been eliminated, the only way to die is to be randomly killed (“gleaned”) by professional reapers (“scythes”). Citra and Rowan are teenagers who have been selected to be scythe’s apprentices, and—despite wanting nothing to do with the vocation—they must learn the art of killing and come to understand the necessity of what they do.

Only one of them will be chosen as a scythe’s apprentice. And when it becomes clear that the winning apprentice’s first task will be to glean the loser, Citra and Rowan are pitted against one another in a fight for their lives.

Publication date: November 22nd


Ummm…the blurb! I love the premise for this book, and I am so excited to see how things play out!

    1. You’ve been raving about wanting it forever, and I was happy a book was coming out you were so excited about. But I am ashamed to say that I never checked the blurb out until I saw it on someone else’s ‘Waiting on’ Wednesday. Now I can’t wait to read it!
